Acts of Kindness
I have been knitting a lot of shawls. Last year I knit a dozen and I have knit four this year. Unfortunately I have not fully recovered from my surgery. The area where my scar is prevents me from being able to block lace work properly. I cannot stretch to do pinning the way I need to. To the rescue came Lynn. LynnZimm mentioned on plurk that she enjoys blocking and likes to see lace go from it's original knitted state to something open and beautiful. I jokingly said I had some shawls I would love for her to block. I had shawls from last year that I never got to block, the two Charlotte Web shawls, the Faro Easy Shawl, etc. Well Lynn said send them to me. Is that not the most generous and kind offer ever? I could not think of a way to thank her enough, I threw some goodies in with the shawls. But how do you really thank someone for such a helpful kind act? I just really appreciate everything Lynn is doing for me and I will share the blocked beauties on the blog when they get home.
